Some 495 young athletes have signed up for the Grade School Track Meet, which will begin at 1 p.m. Wednesday on the Charlie Merrifield Track.

The Hillcrest Hornets won last year’s meet, which saw more than 430 athletes compete.

The meet record book is filled with current and former Butte High and Butte Central stars. The likes of Tami Mathewson, Josh Paffhausen, Keli Dennehy, Tommy Mellott, Clay Fisher, Kloie Thatcher, Hailee Regan, Aaron Richards and Jack Street hold records in the meet.

Street’s record in the girls’ sixth-grade 400 meter dash dates back to 1979. No records have fallen over the last three years.

The event is sponsored by the Butte Athletic Council.
